Chicago Police Department Case #HW255062

Street activity was heavy on the heels of Chicago’s first 80 degree day in 7 months. Things got so “interesting,” the police sergeant responsible for supervising Wrigleyville and Boystown  overnight activated an impromptu robbery mission team at 1:45am.

Mutliple street stops were conducted in the neighborhood during the mission and several people were interviewed. Among those stopped was a member of the La Raza street gang, whose most recent address is the Howard Brown Broadway Youth Center. It’s unclear how being on the street at 2:45AM advanced his “transition.”

In addition, the robbery team arrested two individuals at the intersection of Sheffield and Belmont at 3:50AM. Details of the arrest will be forthcoming.

UPDATE 9 MAY 2013 1:03AM: The two individuals arrested at Sheffield and Belmont were charged with criminal sexual abuse/public indecency for having sex on the sidewalk. This is Chicago Police Department case #HW255062.
